Whey protein/mass gainer vs. acid reflux

Hi, I have been working out since 4 years now. I have tried a lot of whey proteins and mass gainers and they have worked very well for me. But since a year, whenever I take either whey protein or mass gainer I immediately get acid reflux and a really bad headache. I have switched a number of proteins and gainers but I always get the same problem. I love to workout and my schedule doesn't allow me to follow a strict diet hence the supplements. I do not know what might be the problem with this. I am not even lactose intolerant. Currently, I have to take ProteinX which is doing fine for me. But it doesn't provide me with the calories and proteins I need to build back my muscles. Can anyone help me out on this? Thanks.

Hi,

Sometimes digestion system weakens due to overdose or excessive use of supplements or weak liver due to which one is not able to utilise proteins in the body, it may lead to such problems. Pls, consult your doctor in this case. Do not consume any supplement till the time you are recovered from acid reflux.

for exact body weight we need consume 15% of protein. excess causes acidity. increase water intake per day . stop using curd intake at night. consume light meal at night. heavy break fast and moderate meal and light dinner should be in practice to avoid acidity.
